If someone got a new license in another state would the current license show suspended?

Asked by Roadtodebt (529points) 3 weeks ago from iPhone

Basically my ex husband moved to New York 2 years ago, I just found his Florida license number and it’s showing suspended due to not renewing his registration as of 9/27/18 so does that mean he has a New York license now?

No, it means his Florida one no longer is any good.

It might mean that he has a NY one. But you don’t know that for sure. That would be a guess. He could have a NJ or Connecticut one.

Or he could have had his license suspended for other reaons

It shows online that it was suspended last month due to not renewing his Florida registration, some people IRL are telling me if his Florida one is suspended he wouldn’t qualify for one in another state, so that isn’t true?

You can’t assume.

I just thought it was a law but I’m getting mixed answers.

It just expired. If he wants to get another license, in any state, he can. That includes Florida.

I think law probably varies from what actually gets put into systems. I wouldn’t be surprised if he got a license in another state and it didn’t result in anyone telling Florida about it.

By law he needed to get a New York license within 30 days of becoming a resident there.

You said in an earlier thread he had bought a truck, I think NY requires a valid driver’s license from NY to purchase a vehicle.

He got the truck in June of 2018 and in the pic he posted of it on Instagram it had Florida tags then .. on flhsmv.gov it’s says his license is Canceled, suspended, revoked, disqualified or withdraw… fr suspension as the type, effective 9/28/18 and the description is fr registration renewal, status effective

Somehow the term ‘stalker’ is wafting into my consciousness.

do you always give such helpful feedback? I’m just tying to do what the courts in Florida won’t.

I have moved state to state many times over the past forty years. He doesn’t need his Florida license anymore, because he isn’t living there anymore. When a license is not renewed by the expiration date, that license is no longer valid. That is automatic, whether the person moved, died, or lies in a care facility in a coma. It means one thing only. He is not licensed to drive in Florida. He is also not licensed in Maine, California, or Illinois. He is living in New York, and so he got a license there. So long as he didn’t lose his license through some criminal activity, then he is free to get a license in whatever state is his residence. Obviously he has done so.
I couldn’t possibly make this any plainer. If you think you got something on him, you are wrong.

I don’t think I “got anything on him” the department of revenue is asking me for his social, drivers license, most recent address, etc. and I am just trying to find out as much as I can because I literally have no contact or info besides and expired licesen number and his social, He owes child support, I’ve posted several posts about this already, I don’t have $2000 for a retainer for a lawyer, I don’t have thousands of dollars on top of that to pay to a lawyer, I’m just here just asking for general information because google says one thing, you guys are saying another but thanks for being rude.

Who is being rude?
I answered your question already, and you completely ignored it to argue with other people.
I have been trying to help you out, here and the other question I saw from you. It is rude that instead of thanking me and others for spending time trying to help, you go on and on as if nothing we said is valid.
His Florida license is of no use to you whatsoever.
If there is a picture of him that you can see the plates are NY, then you should be able to read the plate number. That is the only piece of information you can use.
If you are so sure of whatever you got from Google, I don’t know why you bothered to ask here, but if it says anything different than what I told you, then you misunderstood what it said, or posted the details wrong here.
Nice the only thanks I get for my sound advice is sarcastically thrown at me.

I know I do honestly, it’s just expensive, paying to get money from someone the courts can’t even locate..I’ll check it out, thanks kardamom.

No, probably not. In a perfect world it would, but this world isn’t perfect. If you have more than 1 license, you could get a ticket. (Like a truck driver that has 2 log books.)

Florida tags in June means he bought it in Florida !
License plate numbers to a Private Investigator means you know where he is !

Roadtodebt's avatar

He had his Florida tags in New York, and he’s had a Florida drivers license for the past 2 years he’s been there, it’s only recently been suspended. I can’t see the first 3 letters/numbers on the tag the way the picture is positioned but i can see that it’s a Florida rag because I’m in Florida, obviously.

I think just give them the SS# and the most recent address you know of, and that you know he now lives in NY and is a truck driver. Tell them you assume he is licensed in NY, when you looked up his FLDL it is revoked now.

If he has a trucking license, then most likely that license has a valid address on it. How hard could it be for the police to find out the DMV information? Won’t they do that for you? Plus, his tax return would have his address from at least the time when he filed taxes, maybe he lives in the same place. In NY he filed federal and state taxes, so the state has the state filing and the address on that form.

Definitely look into the free lawyer service that @kardamom supplied. This is how things work in my state: my brother’s ex wife would hire a lawyer and take him back to court every couple of years to try to increase her child support. If she won and got more, he also had to pay her lawyer fees. If he won and didn’t have to pay more, she had to pay her own lawyer fees.

Roadtodebt's avatar

He’s just not paying at all ): I don’t really care to increase at all, I just want him to pay what he is suppose to but I’ll look into it, thank you so much.

Kardamom's avatar

Why aren’t you looking into the FREE LAWYER ADVICE?

Is this Q just to vent? Are you not really serious about persuing this in a real, and legal manner?

JLeslie's avatar

@Roadtodebt You have no phone number for him? What about contact with his parents? Can you get the message out to his parents that you will have him arrested if he doesn’t pay you what he owes? Although, a girlfriend of mine did this, and her husband’s response was, “at least I’ll get three squares.” However, as soon as they did arrest him, he was freaking out and paying her to get out of jail, but then he never paid again. She didn’t have the wherewithal to have him arrested again. Maybe make a deal with him that if he pays just some money you won’t have him arrested. If he thinks it’s all or none, if he’s a jerk, and doesn’t care about jail, he might pay none. Do his parents have money?

It seems to me if he is an employee it should be easy for the state to figure out his place of employment. His SS number is being used to pay state taxes. If he is self employed it might not be as easy.

I can tell you this, in my company we can’t hire someone who has missed child support. It goes on their DMV record I think. Our employees drive vans and must have a clean driving record.

All I know is twice we tried to hire two different men and the insurance company came back with they wouldn’t insure them, because of a failure to pay child support. We were pissed, but if he’s a trucker it might affect his livelihood, he might care about that.
